The First Days Story Project was an outreach and engagement initiative for the PBS American Experience documentary “Last Days in Vietnam,” which chronicled the final days of the war and evacuation in Saigon. The First Days Project invited members of the Vietnamese-American community and Vietnam veterans with strong ties to the post-war diaspora and evacuation to record an interview with a loved one or friend in order to document the Vietnamese-American refugee experience through the voices of those who lived it.
